I’m so excited to be reviewing this movie, being a huge fan of the Harry Potter series.
First, I would like to introduce the characters and actors who play them which are:
Eddie Redmayne – Newt Scamander ( Jupiter Ascending, The Danish girl, My week with Marilyn )
Collin Farrell – Graves ( S.W.A.T, Fright Night, Winter’s Tale )
Katherine Waterson – Tina ( The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby : Her )
Samantha Morton – Mary Lou (Lassie, John Carter)
Dan Fogler – Kowalski (The Goldberg’s)
Ezra Miller – Credence Barebone ( The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Suicide Squad, The flash : movie )
Faith Wood - Blagrove - Modesty Barebone
Jenn Murray – Chastity Barebone (Brooklyn, Angel).
Director David Yates, who took on some of the Harry Potter films (and in my opinion one of the best directors) is taking on the director’s role for Fantastic Beasts. I’m glad J.K Rowling and David have teamed up again to bring this fantastic movie alive.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them adapted from J.K Rowling's creative mind as well as the creatures from the book written by herself.
The story starts with Newt Scamander arriving in New York City with his brown leather brief case. It looks normal from the outside, but this isn’t just any old brief case as you may think it is- it’s a case that can change from hiding things that muggle's should not see. It hides anything with a click of the finger to muggle’s seeing ONLY. Leaving you wondering straight away, what is in that case?
If you do not know what Muggle means then I ask you to look it up, as for the non muggle’s you will know what I’m talking about.
Newt is hiding a lot of things in his brief case but what are they, or should I ask, do you want to know?
Newt is on a mission to bring something back to London but in the meantime things start happening just as he arrives. Something is killing innocent muggle’s, will they get to the bottom of who or what is doing this? But for now Newt has his own problems, he has accidentally let loose creatures that, yes you guessed it, were in his brief case. These creatures do not harm anyone. In fact even though some of them damage the city, they mostly live in the brief case which is bigger on the inside that out.
Newt meets and teams up with a muggle that accidentally sees things that muggle’s should not, as its against the wizarding law, but Newt takes to liking this muggle (Kowalski) and asks him to help him find what he has let loose in New York city. Will he find them all and get them back safe and sound into the brief case?
Along the way Newt is caught for using magic in public as he meets up with a woman who, like himself is a witch, and takes him to the New York Ministry, but they don’t want to know about Newt and what he has done. So she helps him as well, to get back all the creatures Newt let loose.
Will they be able to get them all back or will some be lost forever?
What will happen now that Magic has been exposed to the muggle world or as the Americans call them No Maj ( pronounced no Madge as in non-magical ).
How will they get out of this mess? Watch the movie and find out.
The amount of special effects that was in this movie was amazing from set design, to creatures to even costumes. My favourite creature was Niffler who loves all things shiny of course.
Also loved little Bowtruckly aka Pickett.
They are both very adorable and of course harmless. There was so much action in this movie that it kept you wanting more. I loved how they brought in humour as well with different situations. This movie I recommend going to see more than once- you won’t get sick of watching it over and over again.
Let’s bring the magic back into our lives and our imagination.
I’m so excited for the next movie that will be out in 2018, I can’t wait to see what J.K Rowling has in store for the next movies to come.
I rate this movie a 10 / 10
The magic never dies
